    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.7.3

    There truth on both sides of the coin here. Regardless of who's to blame, I think we can all draw some basic conclusions: 1) AMD's new beta 19.7.5 driver broke compatibility with MSI Afterburner and the MSI gaming app. AMD is [technically] at fault for causing this problem, but they are not...

    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.7.3

    Yes, I rolled back to 19.5.2: all compatibility problems have been resolved, both MSI programs are working properly again. I agree with @Berfs1 this definitely looks like an AMD beta driver related issue. (see explanation above)

    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.7.3

    While it is true that AMD is under no obligation to ensure 3rd party apps work with their drivers, you can only make that claim in reference to a stable driver release. With a beta release, there is to much of a grey area and problems like this could very easily be chalked up to the AMD side...

    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.7.3

    Don't jump to conclusions, I'm not complaining, I'm simply pointing out the issues I've discovered so far... and as I'm sure you know, beta versions have a tendency to be buggy so this kind of stuff is the norm. And make no mistake, this is definitely an AMD driver problem. The reason I say...

    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.7.3

    So I take it this beta release doesn't support the MSI gaming app? Because after a clean install of the new drivers I'm getting this error: For reference purposes this rig is running the MSI Gaming X 8GB RX580 GPU and its nerve center is a Phenom II X6 Thuban CPU. EDIT: I also having trouble...

    Matisse (Ryzen 3000) overclocking/undervolting

    Are you already seeing degradation with Zen 2 specifically? I'm just puzzled / surprised that there is even evidence of degradation so soon after release.

    List your most fun or favorite overclock

    Wow dinnercore... That is a NUTZ chip you got there. Best I could do on my E8500 was 4.7ghz so you have something special, hell you even marched right through the 5.0ghz barrier without breaking a sweat. That's one CPU you should keep, frame, and put on the wall someday!

    List your most fun or favorite overclock

    Just wanted to add another favorite to the list here. This is my Core 2 Extreme X9000 processor overclocked to 4.2Ghz in a Lenovo T61p laptop. I used the freezer to cool it down then got the validation. This one put me in 3rd place overall for this particular CPU over at HWbot. But there are...

    Post up a CPUz screenshot of an exceptional overclock (MVP)

    I was thinking it would be cool to see some eye candy from your most valuable overclock. Or one that has stood out from the rest for some reason. If you don't have a favorite, pick one for sentimental reasons. Requirements are simple: -Post a CPUz screenshot of your most prized or most valuable...

    i5-6500T 2.5GHz Overclock?

    Looking good, seems you got your memory dialed in as well. I always like comparing before and after scores with AIDA64 cache and memory benchmark.

    List your most fun or favorite overclock

    I've had some fun the LGA 771 to 775 conversion. Especially the Intel Xeon x5470 X4, which runs at 3.33 Ghz right out of the box. MSI-P42-C51 motherboard is not the greatest overclocking board, so my options were a little limited. Using the 10x multiplier I was able to hit 4.0Ghz with a few...

    Using car coolant to cool CPU ?!

    The older non flavored antifreeze has also been used in intentional poisonings, aka murder. That has largely been eliminated due to the favoring that is now required.

    Using car coolant to cool CPU ?!

    I wonder if water wetter would help at all with temps? :D Using it in my honda VFR 800 brought peak coolant temps down from 225*F to 214*F
